Hunt Slonem. A prolific painter, printmaker, and sculptor, Slonem is one of America’s most renowned artists and has become best known for his electric neo-expressionist paintings of bunnies, butterflies, and tropical birds. His work is included in more than 250 major museum collections worldwide, including those of the Bahrain National Museum, Manama, Bahrain; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, New York; the National Gallery of Art and Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; and the Morris Museum of Art, Augusta, Georgia.
The Gala, the Morris Museum’s biggest fundraiser, supports the museum’s operating budget and helps the museum to provide free public programs and services at the museum and throughout the community.
